National Live Creative Day is this September 14, 2022, and to spark some creativity, why not take friends and family out for a day at a local museum. Here on the Upper East Side, we’re surrounded by some of the best museums not only locally but throughout the world.
From the New York Historical Society Museum to the American Museum of Natural History, there’s quite a lot to explore just around the corner from The Sagamore.
American Museum of Natural History
Have you stood beside a Titanosaur or a Stegosaurus? Located at 200 Central Park West, at 81st and Columbus Ave, the American Museum of Natural History, you might begin to feel just a bit small as you walk through the many exhibits featuring dinosaurs at full height, the 1,400 year old Giant Sequoia Tree, the gigantic Galapagos Giant Tortoise, or even the massive meteorites at Arthur Ross Hall.
Timed-entry ticket reservations continue to be required for Museum entry and facial covers are also strongly recommended. Learn more about the American Museum of Natural History.
New-York Historical Society Museum and Library
Now that your group has experienced natural history, it’s time to focus on human history. The New-York Historical Society Museum and Library might not sound like much but in fact, this is one of the best local museums in town.
Here you’ll find exhibits covering much more challenging topics like race and equality and some of the current exhibits exemplify this idea perfectly, including “Confronting Hate 1937-1952,” “Title IX: Activism On and Off the Field,” and “Our Composite Nation: Frederick Douglass’ America.” Every exhibit is, in a way, life changing. So you can rest assured that a trip to the New-York Historical Society Museum and Library will spark your inner artist or activist.
